 March 21, 2014, 18:01 2D-Simulation of airfoil #1 New Member   Join Date: Jan 2014 Posts: 2 Rep Power: 0 Hello everyone, I am completly new to CFD and currently working on a project where I have to do a simulation of an 2D-Airfoil. The following data is given: Fluid: water Fluid velocity: 4.5 m/s Stationary and incompressible flow Static Pressure: 3 bar So for structered mesh, you have to consider the diffrent types of farfields, which effect the quality of mesh, but since Simulation CFD only supports unstructered mesh, I have chosen a simple rectangle as my farfield, with two more fields for denser mesh. Since I am a novice in this field, I would like to ask you some Questions. 1) My first question is about the boundary conditions: I have set the right edge (inlet) to "velocity" (fluidspeed 4.5 m/s) and the outlet to "pressure" (3 bar gage). The other two edges are set to slip/symmetry. Are these BCs chosen correctly? 2) I am amazed but at the same time sceptical about the mesh generation. It seems really easy to generate a unstructured mesh but at the same time I can't estimate its quality. Seeing the results, my generated mesh seems to do a good job. Could one of you take a look at my mesh and results? So far, I have mostly seen hexa-meshs for 2D-simulations, but can a tetra-mesh be that accurat too? 3) How can I make a cp-plot (pressure coefficient along both surfaces (pressure and suction side)). I have an excel-file with points of interest for measuring. Is there a possibilty to import these points? 4) My last question for now: Autodesk Simulation CFD chooses the Standard k-ε turbulence model by default. I don't know where I can change this but is this model suitable for my task? I know these are quite some questions, but I would really appreciate it if you guys could help me here. Many Thanks and Best Regards safe.payi PS: Here is the result file

There was another person that went through a lot of this on a 2D airfoil where I believe the only difference was that theirs was in Air not water. As far as Turbulence models this is changed under the Solve dialog / Physics / Turbulence button. And discussed in the online Help
